Good afternoon everyone, today we’re sharing with you a review of the Nike VR Combo irons that are geared towards lower handicapped players. And if your have ever been turned off to Nike equipment because of their feel in the past it may be time to re-think your position and give these irons a shot.  They are simply beautiful, playable blades.

Look

The Nike VR Pro Combo irons are designed with a progressive cavity in long irons to pure blade in the short irons. The irons utilize a thin top line and thin to medium width sole. The long irons (3 & 4) feature a pocket cavity designed to produce a higher trajectory. The mid irons (5, 6, 7) irons use a cavity design while the short irons (8, 9 & PW) are a pure blade. This progressive iron set is designed for better players.

The club head and face is an average size compared to most irons designed for a skilled ball striker, and the face utilizes more compact grooves. The chrome appearance of this irons looks really attractive. The irons feature sharper edges and a square appearance. A solid ball strikers and better players are going to enjoy these beauties.

Performance

I tested the Nike VR Pro Combo irons with an S300 Dynamic Gold Sensicore True Temper shaft. Testing proved to me that this is a dependable iron that allows a player to control the distance, direction and trajectory of the golf ball. With that said, these irons are not designed to maximize distance, and I found them very average in that department.

For me personally, these irons delivered a ball flight that consistently went straight or produced a slight fade. Additionally, the irons typically produced a mid trajectory for most swings. The VR Pro Combo irons were very easy to control trajectory, especially when it came to hitting knock downs. Unlike many game improvement irons, these irons produced a mid-low trajectory that never ballooned. The blades feel great around the green providing the ability to dig down in a difficult lie in the rough or a regular lie in the fairway. The long irons were extremely easy to hit and produced a mid flight that went straight with little movement. The long irons with the pocket cavity were much easier to hit then they looked. Nike did a fantastic job designing a progressive iron set that looks good and performs well. These irons far exceeded my expectations.

Feel

The long irons with the pocket cavity have a completely different feel compared to the blades in this set. The pocket cavity really produces a trampoline effect that significantly reduces vibrations on a well struck golf shot. Toe and heel shots do not dampen vibrations nearly as well, which is great for feel. In comparison, the blades feel soft at impact when struck in the sweet spot. The mid irons feel really solid at impact. When it comes to off-center hits however, these irons feel quite clunky.

The irons have a solid weight throughout the set, with a swing weight of D1-D3. Low handicap players should enjoy the smooth feeling of a well struck golf shot but for average players, these irons are likely going to cause some consistency issues.

Value

The Nike VR Pro Combo irons are not for everyone. Good ball strikers will enjoy the playability of the irons. Many player irons retail upwards of $899 or more, however, the Nike VR Pro Combo has an attractive retail price of $699 making them one of the lower priced player irons on the market today. The VR Pro Combo irons should change a negative perception some people have towards Nike irons. In addition, Nike currently has some of the most talented players in the world using Nike golf equipment. The lack of forgiveness makes the VR Pro Combo a realistic option for only a small percentage of golfers. However, combined with an affordable price, great look, solid feel and reliable performance the Nike VR Pro Combo irons are an intriguing choice of irons for a skilled ball striker.
